Snyder reportedly forced his way into the first apartment at about 4:00 a.m., demanded beer and began rummaging through the refrigerator. Empty handed and angry, police say Snyder punched the apartment’s occupant before exiting the home and continuing with his quest.
Just moments later, Snyder entered another apartment in the building where he was immediately confronted by a male resident. The two scrapped for a bit before Snyder armed himself with a corkscrew and stabbed the man in the back. Other residents in the apartment were able to hold Snyder until police arrived. The guy who got corkscrewed ended up with about 22 stitches.
He apparently hadn’t calmed down any in the time it took for the police to get there. Snyder reportedly threatened one of the arresting officers, telling him, “I live in the district. I’m going to kill your ass – you can’t lock me up forever.” He then asked the officer if he wanted some AIDS and spat on him.
Snyder has been charged with two counts of home invasion, aggravated battery causing great bodily harm and aggravated battery to a police officer. He was ordered held on $250,000 bond. Past convictions include both aggravated and domestic battery.
Let’s say we put him and Ms. Henry in a cage together. He gets a bowl of potato salad and she gets a six pack of beer. Who do you think would come out on top? My five’s on Henry…Tags: Battery, battery on a peace officer, corkscrew, Home Invasion, Illinois, Stabbing, Tim Snyder
